It would better to greet you as water,
To embrace you as light
And know you as wind.
Be brushed and buoyed by me,
Held and washed over, my arms long to know you
Make me into league-like depths,
And the air I no longer need to come up for.
Leave me of another likeness,
And I will know you still.
I will love you better,
I will be fulfilled.

Thank you Katherine,
